It’s going to be the Wild, Wild, West out there in MLB DFS lineups on Thursday’s nine-game slate. Pitching is going to be a crapshoot, even more so now that Cole Hamels has been scratched from his start. I’m recommendation is to find the pitcher(s) you like and don’t worry about ownership percentages even in GPPs because it will be so spread out. There are two teams that highlight the hitting side but there is still plenty of directions you can go with smaller two or three-man stacks. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
The Weighted Consensus for the MLB is where we publish an in-depth version of rankings every day that considers each expert’s current DailyOverlay score to generate a Weighted Consensus ranking. To calculate the Weighted Rank Score, each expert’s DailyOverlay score for hitters and pitchers is weighted on a sliding scale from 1 to 5 with the top expert in the current standings being weighted with a five while the last place expert is weighted with a one. This method gives the higher rated experts picks more weight when compiling the overall player rankings for the day. We will include all players that generate a Rank Score of at least 8.0.
